Release Notes

Contacts Bridge is a fork of the main Contacts.Net project. It provides only a managed wrapper over the IContact APIs in Vista via COM interop with Wab32.dll. It is designed to be as direct as possible in how it accesses the APIs, so bugs and idiosyncrisies in the native platform are intentionally exposed, and very little additional functionality is provided beyond that of the COM APIs. Because of the bare-bones nature it should also be more performant than the point releases of Contacts.Net.

For clients that don't need functionality beyond the native IContact implementation (e.g. groups, vCard conversion, alternate ContactManager roots) this is a viable library for accessing Vista's contact data.

When using this library the Gotchas page might be useful. Also looking in the Issue Tracker for bugs that include the phrase "Windows Bug" will help, as those are generally exposed when using this library.
